Corphish -- Primal Clash Pokemon Card Review

Corphish Primal Clash Pokemon Card
Pokemon Card Overview:
Today's Pokemon Card Review is of Corphish from the Primal Clash Pokemon Card Set.  Corphish is a basic, water type Pokemon card with an hp of 60.  It has a x2 weakness to grass type Pokemon, no resistance type, and a one colorless energy card retreat cost. Corphish does not have an Ability but it does have two moves.  The first move that this card has is called Vice Grip, for one colorless energy card this move does 10 damage.  Corphish's second move is called Knock Off and for two colorless energy cards, this move allows you to discard a random card from your opponent's hand.

Pokemon Card Strategy:
So as far as strategy goes, since Corphish is a basic Pokemon card with a stage 1 evolution in Crawdaunt, which I'll be reviewing in a few weeks since it is a darkness type Pokemon, you'll more than likely want to use this card with that Pokemon.  However, since I haven't reviewed that card yet, I'll just act as though I plan on using this card without its evolution.  So, on its own, this card isn't of much use since it can only do a maximum of 10 damage a turn.  So I wouldn't recommend using this card in a deck.  But if you choose to use this card, you can use it in practically any deck since it just requires colorless energy cards to attack, however, since it can only do 10 damage a turn, I wouldn't want to put Corphish into the active Pokemon spot much later than the start of the game.  Once in the active Pokemon spot, I would use Vice Grip most turns, I wouldn't waste an energy card to use Knock Off at all.

Pokemon Card Rating:
I would give this card a 2 out of 5 rating.  So in my opinion, on its own, without considering Crawdaunt, this card is a below average Basic Pokemon card from the Primal Clash set.  This card does have an average HP, low retreat cost, and two moves, but the main reason I'm giving this card a below average rating is because its attacks are both very weak, one being able to do 10 damage and the other move not being able to do any damage at all.  So if you're looking for a Basic Pokemon card to use in your deck, please look elsewhere, this Corphish card just isn't that great.
